to our charlry rose special edition, why shakespeare. we will hear from some of the most celebrated actors, directors and scholars working today am they'll help us better understand the complexity and the genius of william shakespeare. nearly 400 years after his death we're still left wondering how could one person write so beautifully, be so enduring and speak so eloquently to what it means to be human. shakespeare's great rival ben johnson wrote of him, he was not of an age, but for all time. laurence olivier once called him the nearest thing in incarnation to the eye of god. william shakespeare was born in 1564 in the small pro vention english town of statford upon avon. he moved to london in the late 1580s and in a remarkably short period of time became perhaps the greatest playwright of all time. the names speak for themselves. hamleting king lear, othello, macbeth, romeo and juliet. these plays have been passed down through generations. they dazzle us with an appeal that transcends time and culture. tonight in our first episode with the charlry rose shakespeare series we start

i had no idea. antiques roadshow, only on pbs. announcer: coming up shakespeare's darkest tragedy. fair is foul... all: and foul is fair! ethan hawke: even the name of it is supposed to conjure the dregs of the universe. announcer: ethan hawke explores the black heart of the scottish play. hawke: you can watch polanski's "macbeth," you can watch orson welles' "macbeth," and of course the trick is then you have to forget all that and live it. man: ethan, over there is dunsinane hill. history is always written by the victors. as the loser, macbeth is invented as a tyrant. "it is a tale told by an idiot, "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." announcer: "macbeth" on "shakespeare uncovered." captioning made possible by friends of nci major funding for "shakespeare uncovered" is provided by... the national endowment for the humanities... exploring the human endeavor... the howard and abby milstein foundation. shakespeare is an enduring treasure of western art. bringing new audiences to his work is a key reason we're funding "shakespeare uncovered."

, and one of the things is shakespeare, and when learned a lot of other things too, but shakespeare spoke of seven stages of man, and i don't have enough time here today to go that deeply into that, so i will focus on three stages of the life of milton marks as i knew him. milton was my student. milton was my colleague and milton was definitely my friend. at presidio junior high school at the era before they became middle schools he was a student in my english class. even then the complexity of his personality could be seen within the child there was reflective and mature little man. adolescence can be sortd and graded in the classrooms by their sense of humor. the immature ones are still laughing at the jokes from thid grade. why did tiger look in the toilet? he was trying to find poo. >> >> i have 12th graders that still laugh at that assumer but even as a 12 year old milton had developed a taste for rye and mature humor and sophisticated humor and he was one of the few when we read the "romeo and juliet" and really got it was that was so wonderful in the humor there, and there was

that she had a shakespeare like interaction of the characters. so that we can have dialogue but not little lectures pasted in as it were. tolstoy would be a huge case in point. of course, he had the good, artistic grace and sense to wait until the end of one piece before of these before explicitly setting up a theory of history, which had been tacitly and subtly demonstrated by the preceding thousand pages of fiction. it requires very little thought to come up with examples of novelists using a character to give a straightforward lecture or in the case of a lecture on the painting of the dead christ. i think you have a copy of that incredible picture. it was in 1867 that the painting was first seen. his wife recalls how he stood for 20 minutes before the picture without moving. i often notice during the first moments of his epileptic fit. he could never forget and station that he had experienced in the museum in 1857. the figure of christ taken from the cross whose body party showed signs of decomposition haunted him like a horrible nightmare. and he comes back as painting and the idiot. h

that shakespeare is specifically of play like a shield and also pointed out and we will come back to that shortly. hamlet is a series of little essays. hamlet on friendship. hamlet on suicide. this is not just me twisting shakespeare to suit my purposes in a marginal comment of a soliloquy herman melville wrote here is forcibly shown have led. to cv essayistic qualities. to revert, i don't know about you but while i still enjoy the essayistic part of the of miracle like this i was becoming increasingly impatient with the novelistic parts which unfairly i remember a benny hill with doctors and chasing after nurses so i was glad to get those be trade and s.a. of seven parts that they gave me all the stuff that i wanted without the novelistic bits. in the novel of the former variation, then the testaments be trade was an essay of the variations are a series of variations. the same is true of that later that ends with the extraordinary reflection that is similar. is the history of music. a wonderful idea. but to in other words, to say that is the novelistic essay ashley novel that is exactly what yo
